Bhīma

A sage of old who possessed the five higher knowledges (abhiññā) and great psychic-powers (iddhi).

The Bodhisatta, at that time, was a learned brahmin, and, having met Bhīma, said that he was a sensualist (kāma-bhogī), and his disciples agreed with him. It was for this reason the Buddha and five hundred monks suffered calumny at the hands of Suṇḍarī. Ap.i.299; UdA.264.
